I held a 'special event' in the library last week around Halloween with all of the elementary classes during their weekly library time. I sent each class a large invitation to join me at "Read-in-the-Dark"!
We went into a special room and used flashlights to read... we read a Halloween book or two together first and then they could each get comfortable and use a flashlight to read their own books that they just checked out from the library. ...The week was both exhausting and fun!
It was great to see the kids get excited about reading (even the 3- and 4-year olds read and looked at their books!)... and to hear awesome feedback from students and teachers.
